In my reading of the proposal, not-tier-1 arches will receive appropriate 
space and resources off the main mirror network if they can demonstrate 
viability (working buildd, basic unix functionality, compiled 50%, 5 
developers, 50 users) and DFSG-ness (freely usable, unmodified Debian 
source). As far as I can see all current official Debian arches fulfill these 
criteria. For the in-development arches like k*bsd with a handful of 
developers and a extremly small userbase other solutions are already used.
